The Vox Humana brand name was established in 1922, when Wil Saris started building acoustic guitars under that brand in Vlaardingen and later Rotterdam. In 1957 Cees van Loon took over the business. Originally Cees van Loon (1929) worked in the early 1950s for the Amsterdam guitar and violin builder B. Willemsen, but after the takeover of Vox Humana he built Spanish guitars himself in an attic in Vlaardingen. In 1960 he opened a music shop at 25 Rijkestraat in Vlaardingen and started building and repairing acoustic, jazz and lap steel guitars. The company is still active in Vlaardingen and is one of the largest custom guitar builders in the Netherlands.
